Biggie told us in the “Ten Crack Commandments” to never keep your crack where you rest at. You can substitute crack with any other illegal item one may be selling. Charles Lewis, 42, of New Jersey broke this cardinal rule of hustling, and now sits in jail in lieu of $200,000 bail, after a recent raid on his $1.3 million crib, according to MyCentralJersey.com.
The house sits on Sneider Road in a ritzy Somerset County neighborhood. The house was invaded by personnel with the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office Organized Crime and Narcotics Task Force, the Warren Police Department and Bound Brook Police Department. on December 18. Inside, they found ten kilos of cocaine (valued at $1 million) and two bricks of heroin (valued at $200,000). Additionally, the laws seized $291,147 in cash. The bust is said to be one of the largest in the history of county. “The quantity of the cocaine and heroin seized in this operation is, frankly, overwhelming,” said Somerset County Prosecutor Geoffrey Soriano. “It’s a testament to the type of results that occur when law-enforcement agencies work together to rid our streets of the trafficking of illegal drugs.”
Lewis faces two counts of first degree possession of heroin and cocaine with intent to distribute. The first-degree charges carry a minimum sentence of ten years in prison. Furthermore, since his 11-year-old daughter who is under his care was in the house at the time, Lewis also faces a charge of third-degree endangering the welfare of a child.
